The IQA is saddened to announce that Rebecca Alley will step down as Executive Director of the IQA, effective September 1 or upon the onboarding of a new executive director.
Her video statement can be found here.
Rebecca has served the organisation as executive director for a year and a half after more than five years of volunteering for team, country, region and tournament committees, among many other roles. As executive director, Rebecca collaborated closely with the board of trustees and department heads to grow international quidditch. Rebecca had an eagle-eye view of all processes and happenings, and made sure to swoop into assist her team wherever she could. Her talent, persistence and oversight will be greatly missed by all members who worked with her.
Bex Alley comments: “I love all the volunteers and am so proud of what we've managed to do in the last year and a half -- props to the old folks for sticking around through some pretty tough times, and props to the newer folks as well. We couldn't do any of the things we do without all of you.”
“It has been fantastic to work alongside Rebecca,” said QA Board of Trustees chair Luke Nickholds. “Her depth of experience and never-ending passion for our sport have been crucial for the growth of the IQA over the past years. Working for the IQA is often a thankless task so we would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks and gratitude.”
The IQA thanks Rebecca for her hard work and dedication, and wish her all the best for the future.
With this, the IQA will open up the search for a new Executive Director, a new leader for the organisation, as a pivotal central role to ensure the sport develops for years to come.
